The Esophageal Cancer Education Foundation (ECEF) throughout the year will sponsor various fundraising events. We rely on those involved in the Foundation to provide opportunities to raise funds so that the Foundation can reach its goals.
The Foundation has also been named as a recipient of funds given in memory of a loved one who has died of esophageal cancer. The funds received from such donations will be used to directly support the research project that is intended to develop a blood test that will lead to an early detection of this disease which will hopefully save lives.
In addition ECEF will in 2013 support two additional research projects that can be found if you click on the Donations at Work Button on the home page. We have set as a goal for 2013 to raise $110,000 to be paid to the research Institutions responsible for these projects. We have also contracted with these institutions that all of the donations we give them will go directly to the research project and not cover general administration expenses.
